wordpress hosting is the same as shared hosting, they rename it to wordpress hosting as a marketing tactic. If it is managed wordpress hosting then it is another story, it means that they will install, secure and optimize it for you.

As long as your shared hosting plan allow a good amount of resource usage and use litespeed technology + LScache then you are good.

Shared hosting is just a type of hosting plan where your site “shares” resources with other sites on the same server. Managed WordPress hosting is a set of added services and performance tweaks that sits on top of regular hosting

That varies from company to company. Some companies have customized servers to host wordpress based websites only, while their plans also have wordpress specific inclusions and features as standard. Having said that wordpress websites can run perfectly on normal shared hosting servers as well.

A shared hosting plan hosts multiple accounts on a single dedicated IP address. They are usually used to save costs and space for hosting. Shared hosting is not very recommendable as they do not provide data security as the same space and IP address is shared between multiple clients.

In both the cases your site shares the resources with other users/sites on the same dedicated server. just the difference is in wordpress hosting the additional features and performance tweaks are added in advantage.
 
Also at times WordPress hosting comes pre-installed with Wordpress to make it easier for customers to get going. Nothing really different from normal shared hosting.

Shared and Wordpress hosting are two different things, you cannot compare the two. You can only compare shared and dedicated hosting. In Shared hosting, your website shares resources with other websites on the server while resources belong to only your website on the dedicated hosting. Wordpress hosting can be on shared or dedicated hosting.

For me, most wordpress hosting is basically a shared hosting service but it is optimized for Wordpress like using LiteSpeed instead of Apache.

Shared hosting is a type of hosting that is good for start up websites with low traffic.
Wordpress hosting is nothing but Wordpress application that can be hosted in shared, dedicated, vps or cloud hosting. The only advantage of Wordpress hosting is the hosting servers are optimized for better performance of Wordpress sites.

WordPress hosting is basically shared hosting optimized to run a WordPress site. Some hosts use this as marketing term, some do really serious job, like setting all the environment specifically to enhance performance for such sites.

WordPress hosting is besically a shared hosting. But its optimized for WordPress. You won't get here any dedicated controlpanel like cPanel. The caching system and security system is just optimized for WordPress CMS and it's easy to handle for new users.

Both hosting services come under the shared hosting environment. Shared and WordPress hosting solutions are the ideal solutions to host basic websites and blogs. In WordPress hosting, you'll get some more features than shared hosting services. WordPress hosting comes with optimised WP themes and plugins, also you get preinstalled WordPress.
So, you decide which one would be the right choice for you.

Of course you can compare shared and WordPress hosting. WordPress hosting can be implemented on shared, VPS and dedicated services.

Shared hosting is where your site shares a server with dozens of other users. Managed WordPress hosting is a kind of hosting where the host manages the entire technical aspects of your website.

Shared Hosting is less expensive and have limited set of services and resources as compared to Managed Wordpress Hosting

The difference between shared and managed WordPress hosting comes down to the additional WordPress-specific services and performance optimizations that managed WordPress hosting provides. Managed WordPress hosting is like having a personal concierge for your website.

Regular shared hosting, on the other hand, delegates much of the responsibility for backups, WordPress optimization, and other tasks to you. Shared hosting is a type of hosting that allows your website to "share" resources with other websites on the same server. Managed WordPress hosting is a bundle of additional services and performance improvements that are added on top of ordinary hosting.
